First Ben took the boys camping for a boys camping weekend away with a friend and his son. They had a great time and as usual bike riding and the camp fire were the biggest hit.
During the school holiday week we played cards...
and did a couple of science experiments too.
As well as the Fire extinguisher, two experiments in one. First its done without water and just the jar showing how once the oxygen is used up the flame goes out. Then with the coloured water and the jar is propped up on three coins. I'll bet you think the water is sucked into the jar because oxygen is used up. We did but its not, its caused by the air in the jar cooling and contracting when the flame goes out. Even us adults can learn a new thing or two. We also did another experiment called Seeing sound, to see that one you'll have to look at 16/52 portrait.
And there was time for playing favourite iPad and computer games. Good for bonding between ALL the boys!
We also got out and about with friends, saw a movie and found a new park all the more special because it had some amazing mud puddles. We ticked all the "must do's" for school holiday fun.

I was a very proud mummy at school assembly when my little Lochy was called up to get a student of the week award for being helpful and a good friend. Of course I took many photos and a movie clip was made of receiving the award. Not kidding by the way.
And gorgeous Gav also had a great week in anticipation of Pebble Party Friday when they got to dress up in their favourite movie / TV character for the day complete with party food. Pebble parties are rewards for doing their homework. Every time they do it they put a pebble in the class jar, when its full the class had a party!
